poopy face

mom! get off my blog! you've been intruding and posting about sumo ( we have decided! thanks to all ) and not even letting me paw my own blog! (sorry, kaui but this is important! so hopefully your buds can help us out! )

so when kaui was a pup, she ate her kibbles. A few months ago, she started to be REALLY REALLY picky on what she eats. she now only demands wet food, so I buy a whole case of wellness puppy wet (she use to eat it all) , and now that was a waste.

so I try buying some ceasar wet food, and she tears it up under one minute. but for some reason, i don't really trust her eating that food. she itches and scratches a lot after this, but she wont eat anything else.

then natural variety chicken kibble, she touches it late at night just a little bit.
so yesterday, we buy more food. wellness lamb and rice kibble and the wet food.
she eats the wet, but we have to force kibble down. im wondering, the breeder from sumo emailed me saying he feeds them pedigree lamb and rice puppy, but I prefer organic for them.
I dont know what to do! She is really picky and it's starting to frustrate me alot.
another weird thing is she would eat "breakfast" at 5pm or 6!

should i feed them both pedigree?
i have naturals variety lamb and rice kibble to mix with wet food for sumo when he comes,and hopefully he wont be a picky eater..

but for kaui! I do not know.... dum dum dummmmm..

Hey Kaui's Mom!
I have the same problem with Suki. She is VERY picky about her food and loves wet food but after a day of the wet food, she turns her nose up at it. It's like she needs variety or something.
Eh, I dunno about Pedigree. I mean, it's not the best, but it's not the worst. The Pugs will survive on it, it's not like it will kill them, but it's not the best.

I say, whatever they enjoy, give it to them, and just try to sneak in some good food along with it occasionally, like fruits and veggies and maybe some fresh meat. But don't worry too much. Kaui won't starve herself! She'll eat it if she's hungry enough ;)

Oh Kaui, I can't help you that much either coz I eat everything too! Chloe & me are not picky but Faith is but my mommy makes her eat her food by playing with her & teasing her with the food. But her food is not plain dry kibbles only, it's mixed with boiled lamb, veggies & lamb soup so it tastes good. But she has to get the 1st taste first & she cannot eat by herself. She has to be spoon fed. So I really don't know how honestly...

Love licks,

Hi Kaui! (and mom)
I'm so excited to hear about your little brother!! He looks so cute! Don't worry, I am sure you will still be loved even when he comes. And mom says she is sorry that she doesn't have any advice... I love to eat EVERYTHING. Right now I am having tummy troubles with my new food so I am trying some boiled ground beef and rice (recommended by the vet) to help transition me to the new food.
Love Clover xo

Suki Su's mom here-
Suki has been really picky lately about her kibbles as well. I was thinking this was probably because I was feeding her too many yummy treats (but really only yogurt and frosty paws), but now I realize that she's just a picky eater. She will eventually eat dry food (Royal Canin miniature puppy) but not till she gets really hungry at night or I get worried for Suki and put some broth on it. Guess I assumed she would eat anything since she's a pug, but I was wrong!

Good luck with the food and with the new brother! Is he home yet?
